Meet the correspondents: NEW YORK > Sharon Frost



“I’ve been an artist all my life and have lived in New York City since I was in my 20s, where I did my grad work, at Hunter College. I’ve been in the studio full time since I retired from my day job in the curatorial fold — oh happy day!

I’ve become more and more dependent on my daily sketchbook activity, even as I continue to work on paper and canvas. The sketchbook has become the heart of my studio practice. Since my husband and I travel a lot to Spanish speaking places (we’re both working on fluency in Castellano — both lived in Latin America in ancient times) the scale has slid to easily-transportable small in everything and I’m becoming very attached to holding my work in my hand and thinking about how it fits in my brain.

I love to draw what’s around me, what’s within my field of vision and see what kind of transactions I can make on the paper as I go along. I add some words that may or may not connect because that’s the way my mind works.”
